Neuropathy: If you're experiencing tingling,pins& needles for weeks, peripheral neuropathy is a possibility. I assume you're not diabetic or deficient in vitamin B12, calcium or magnesium. I recommend having an EMG to determine whether you have peripheral neuropathy. In the meantime try taking magnesium&calcium supplements and continue abstinence from alcohol.
